Hungarian traditional dress

I have tried using google and wikipedia for this, without a whole lot of luck. Also I am on a dial-up connexion of fail!, sigh, and so I have trouble looking at any pictures, so it's especially disappointing when none of them turn out to be what I need.

My character is an Arthurian knight who was born in Hungary and lived there for thirteen years (before he went to Turkey and thence to Britain). Technically the clothing doesn't have to fit a particular time period, as long as it's not modern, since few Arthurian writers I've seen actually strive for accuracy in that area anyway. XD But I was wondering what he'd wear. It's easy to find stuff for when he'd be living in Turkey, and especially Britain, but I'm drawing a total blank on Hungarian clothing.

Thanks!

Vision Impairment.

Me again, I was reading the comments left on my previous post, (thank you guys so much, by the way, ) and a question popped on my head, my character stabbed himself a few months prior the story, so I guess there should be a clear sign of his visual impairment.

Though, for the life of me I cannot  think of how he should act.

Should he move oddly? Have problems reaching objects? Or a month should be enough for him to act like a normal person?
